YOU ARE INVITED TO SNAP'S COMMUNITY WALK THROUGH NIGHT!
Spring-Ford SNAP parent volunteers, with the support of the Spring-Ford community, have spent the past 10 months preparing for the annual SNAP Post-Prom Party. The 2015 Post-Prom theme is Into the Unreal – Where Fantasy Becomes Reality. Thanks to the hard work of volunteers and community members, SFAHS juniors and seniors will experience a night they’ll never forget, as the high school is transformed into a true fantasy land. Attendees will have a sweet experience in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, fly through Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, journey into Narnia and even travel to a galaxy far, far away.
To extend their sincere thanks, SNAP volunteers would like to invite the Spring-Ford community to attend a very special Community Walk Through Night, in appreciation for their ongoing support. The Community Walk Through Night is open to all Spring-Ford community members, families and children of all ages. Community members will get to participate in many of the Post-Prom activities that SFAHS students will enjoy, including:

2015-2016 KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION
Kindergarten Registration for the 2015-16 school year is officially open! As a district, we are using a new process for registering all incoming Kindergarten students that will assist in reducing the need for paper copies and a more overall efficient registration process.
